THE BRYAN BOLT.
There are loud predictions of a
"bolt that it is claimed W. J. Bryan
will lead out of the next democratic
national convention, provided he
cannot control it. It ought to be
safe to conclude that nothing of the
sort will happen, even though Mr
Bryan fail at every point in shap
ing the platform to be made next
year. If Mr. Bryan has done one
thing more than another, it has
been to denounce those democrats
who failed to support the democrat
ic nominee in 1896 and 1900. His
attitude towards these people has
been so marked in .its hostility,
that for the sake of consistency he
cannot under similar conditions do
exactly what he has so persistently
arid so often condemned them for
It has never been charged, nor
is it likely to be charged, even by
his bitterest political opponents
that Mr Bryan is inconsistent. He
is tomorrow steadfast in the be
liefs and purposes that he proclaim--ed
yesterday, and if bolting a nom
inee of his party were held by him
as wrong for others, he is the man
to hold it wrong for himself - to do
the same thing.

philomath WANTS MILL. ..
But Portland Newspaper Objects What
the Latter Has to Say About It.
The Commercial Review of Port
land would smother the aspirations
of Philomath for a flouring mill.
Here is what the paper has to say
about it: , ,
Philomath, . Or., is ambitious to
possess a flouring mill, and a com
pany may be formed to build one.
The citizens would like' to enter in
to - correspondence with a practical
miller of some business Qualifica
tions, as to taking an interest. C. J
H, Newth can be addressed, -a j
: The above item appeared in a re
cent issue of the Northwestern Mil
'lerj 1 We would be very sorry if any
intelligent mill man would attempt
to put up a mill there.. At present
there are enough mills surrounding
this place to supply ten times, the
present population. The valley at
present has over 75 mills and if one
krff of them would close down and
rsfsent to the junk shop the other
half would have hard work running
all the year. . The Willamette Val
ley formerly raised from 6,000,000
to 8,000,000 bushels of wheat; now
they barely raise one-half. .Farm
ers are diversifying more each year,
and it is reported that several , first
class mills will move their plants to
: locations where more wheat is rais
ed. Such articles as these do more
harm than good."

THEIR WEDDING DAT.
Marriage of Dr. George Ainslie of
Portland, and Miss Leona Smith.
The marriage of Dr. George
Ainslie of Portland and Miss Leona
Smith of Corvallis, was solemnized
at the Presbyterian church Inurs
day forenoon. The ceremony took
place at 1 1 o'clock in the presence of
a church-full, of invited guests. Im
mediately after the ceremony the
wedding party with, fifty guests,
partook of a luncheon at the Smith
home, and thereafter Mr. and Mrs.
Ainslie took the- Westside train for
Portland, whence they leave at once
for Europe, for a six months', tour.
In all its appointments, the wed
ding was a delightful affair. - The
only decorations in the church
were about the altar ' and organ,
where potted plants were massed
with pleasing effect. The seats,
usually arranged as to ' form . an
aisle up each side, were disposed in
such a way that they made one
broad aisle up the center. These,
when the hour for the ceremony
arrived, were well filled with friends
and members of the families of the
bride and groom. - ;
The groom occupied a place be
hind a screen at the left of the altar.
Here, with his best man, Dr. Rue
ter of The Dalles, and with the
officiating ministers, Dr. Thompson
and Rev. Carrick, he awaited the
approach of the bride and her party.
At the organ was Mordaunt Good
nough, and as be began the . wed
ding march, the bridal party slowly
approached the altar sthrough -the
broad aisle. The personel of the
party was, Miss Helen Goss. of
Portland, maid of honor; , Miss
Mabel Withy combe of Corvallis,
and Miss. Ainslie, sister , of the
groom, bridesmaids; Clifton Mc
Arthur of Portland, . and Grant
Elgin of Corvallis, ushers; and the
bride on the arm of her .: father,
John Smith. . At the first appear
ance of the party the officiating
ministers had left the screen J and
taken positions in front of the altar,
and as the party advanced, the
groom and best - man, approached.
The attendants, when they met
the groom swung off to the Tight
and left, leaving bride and groom
in the center, the father of the bride
standing at her immediate left, and
the best man at the groom's right-
At a signal, the audience arose,
and remained standing throughout
The familiar voice-of Dr. Thomp
son was first to break . the hush,
when the strains of the wedding
march had died away. Beginning
with, the usual , : inquiry . of who
knows aught why this man and
this woman should not be ioined
in wedlock, and concluding with a
delightful -benediction . on the troth
newly plighted in wedding vows,
Dr. Thompson' s performance of
the ceremony, under the rites of the
Episcopalian ring service, was
beautifully impressive. While the
bride and groom kneeled, and after
Dr. Thompson, with a hand on the
head of each, had pronounced them j
man and wife, Rev." Carrick added
impressiveness to the occasion with
an earnest prayer. - Throughout
the ceremony, the organist . render
ed a refrain to the words in pian-.
issmo strains from his instrument.
The beautiful appearance of the
bride was a subject of universal
comment.- She was - attired in
white silk crepe. the veil being
fastened to the hair with a pin of
diamonds and ,- unpolished opals,
the gift of the groom. Her bou
quet was lilies of the valley,
-Of the attendants, : the maid of
honor and the bridesmaids were in
white and carried bouquets of pink
roses, except Miss Ainslie, whose
boquet was carnations, The gen
tlemen were in morninsr dress.,- ,1.
At the Smitn Home, ' wnere a
weddinsr luncheon was served to a
large number of guests aftet the
ceremony, the decorations -were
simole. They consisted of pink
and white, with a touch of green.
The presents . were displayed in the
front parlor, and in the . hall were
small packages of cake, for ' guests
to carry away, The-, tables, were
spread in the dining room and bak
parlor. . During the progress of the
luncheon, a number of congratula
tory telegrams from distant friends
were received and read aloud. The
home of Mr. and Mrs. Ainslie, af
ter their return from Europe will
be in Portland, where Dr, Ainslie
is engaged in the practice of his
profession. The bride is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
Smith. She is an alumnus of the
Oree-on Agricultural Colleee and
is widely and deservedly popular
in Corvallis and Portland social

THE SIGHT DENIED HIM.
Of His Long Absent Sons, and He Died
; Funeral of a Newcomer.
. Under circumstances peculiarly
distressing, William Taylor, a new
comer, died at the home of Samuel
Dixon near Philomath Monday.
The old gentleman was a veteran of
83 years and three months. Less
than two weeks ago, in company
with a son, he arrived in Corvallis
from Kansas. For several years,
two other sons have resided near
Goldendale, Washington, and the
father has long been possessed with
a desire to see them. He had said,
if he could behold his boys but once
more, he would be ready to die.
But the sight was denied him,
and he went to the grave disappoint
ed. At Grants, on the way west,
the father and son stopped off and
journeyed into Klickitat connty,
Washington, where the other boys
resided. On arrival they, learned
that the latter were in quarantine
with smallpox, and that they could
not be seen. The disappointment
was a heavy blow to the father, and
was the beginning of the end. A
severe cold contracted on the , trip,
finished the work, and from the
Methodist church at Philomath
Tuesday, the aged stranger in a
strange land was buried by strange
hands. The service was conducted
by Rev. Ware, assisted by Bishop
Castle. Rev. Joseph Taylor, of Phil
omath, is a son of the deceased.
William Taylor was a native of
Canada, .where he was born in 18 19.
He resided for ten years each in
Ohio, Illinois and Iowa, and was a
resident of Kansas from 1876 until
he started for Benton county a few
weeks ago. -. ..
AWFUL HIJAT THERE.
In Summer Time Experience of a Fat
Man Who Couldn't Stand it.
It was a midsummer afternoon
in Arizona. A torrid sun shone
down with a merciless glare and
insufferable heat. A long pas
senger train rushed madly, west
ward over the desert prairies, and
the gusts of fierce, heat that stream
ed in through the open windows at
last caused the latter to be shut
down. The metal on the car seats

At the next town the train stop

furnace, and after a proper time,
opened the door to see how he was
